About Us

Newcastle Racecourse is located within the 812 acre estate of High Gosforth Park, and is only 5 miles from Newcastle City Centre. The racecourse is owned by Arena Racing Company, and has been present at High Gosforth Park since 1882.
With 62 race meetings in 2017, Newcastle Racecourse is one of the busiest racecourses in the UK. As well as hosting first class racing, the racecourse is an established conference and events venue. The racecourse shares High Gosforth Park with Parklands Golf Club and the Border Minstrel Pub.
Newcastle Racecourse is a Grade 1 dual code track. Highlights of the 2017 racing calendar include the Eider Chase in February, the new Good Friday fixture, the historic Northumberland Plate Festival at the end of June, the fabulous Ladies Day in late July, the Fighting Fifth Hurdle in December, and a host of thrilling jumps and all-weather fixtures in between.
Recently the racecourse has had over £11million worth of investment, improving the facilities for guests and building an all-weather Tapeta track on the outer of the jumps track. This new all-weather track currently stands as the only floodlit all-weather straight mile in the world.
